Trusts And Foundations

Cure Kids is fortunate to be the recipients of overwhelming support from a number of different trusts and foundations.

We would like to highlight just a few of the significant grants we received.

Ted and Mollie Carr Endowment Fund

For consecutive years, the Ted and Mollie Carr Endowment Fund has continually supported research into finding causative genes in childhood epilepsy. In 2015, a grant from the trust enabled the employment of a research assistant to predominantly recruit and investigate individuals and families living with epilepsy in Auckland.

The Auckland recruitment is on the back of Associate Professor, Lynette Sadleir’s, work studying children and families in Wellington with epilepsy. The success her and her team has had in identifying and diagnosing specific types of epilepsy has led to better treatment paths and ultimately will lead to improved long-term outcomes.

The Trusts Community Foundation

Since 2015, The Trusts Community Foundation has generously supported funds towards our office rental lease agreement. Money towards our operating costs allow Cure Kids to invest more into research and make a greater impact on child health outcomes for New Zealand children.

Perpetual Guardian Trusts

We would also like to express our deepest gratitude to three Perpetual Guardian Trusts who helped bring about a new initiative finding interventions into child health conditions associated with deprivation. The support of Perpetual Guardian allowed four interventions to be funded. You can read about these here.
